The user is placed in a particular age group and then their probability to suffer from stroke is determined. The results obtained are also based on the age group a person falls under. The rating results are provided in either lower than average, average or higher than average of a person in a particular age group. To analyze the stroke probability in a person, the tool enquires on several causing factors. Firstly, the gender of the user is required, the user is then placed in an age group. Questions on the health status of a person are requested. For instance, the tool asks on medical history of condition like diabetes, irregular pulse, fibro muscular dysplasia and transient ischemic attack (UCLA Stroke Center, 2015). Social factors like smoking are then analyzed. The elderly population is the most likely age group to be suffer from stroke. In an argument by Birkett (2012) the population is comprised of too many risk factors as influenced by aging thus a great stroke risk. However, the risk factors in older adults are significantly influenced by the lifestyle at a younger age. For this reason, the younger age groups are a significant target population as older adults. In addition, the risk calculator can be of great importance to younger adults than older adults. This is based on that risk causing factors in older adults are irreversible. In younger adults changes in lifestyle and seeking good health care may reduce the probability of suffering from stroke at an older age (Birkett, 2012). For the older population the tool may also be effective in analyzing their stroke risks status. Similarly to the younger age groups, older adults may also feel the need to change their lifestyle to minimize their stroke risk. For instance, an older adult may be advised to stop smoking or drinking due to a high probability of them having stroke.

The risk free interest rate is the interest rate on a security which has no risk such as Treasury Bills.
